London: Navy police are asking for public help as they probe the death of Anneka Vasta, an ex Playboy model and Caligula actress, who was found naked and washed up with broken neck and back on San Diego beach on January 4 this year.

Authorities want to know whether anyone saw Vasta before joggers found her naked body on a Marine training beach at Camp Pendleton.

The Police are trying to ascertain how she got there and whether her death was a suicide.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, The Naval Criminal Investigative Service wants to know if anyone recalls seeing Vasta along Interstate 5, where her car was found parked at a popular scenic overlook, reported.

Federal agents have been following up the case for the past nine months but still, they have not been able to find out how Vasta got from the vantage point 60 feet above sea level, to the rocky sand below, more than a mile south.

“The main unanswered question that we have is how she got from her vehicle to the water,” the Daily Mail quoted Special Agent Rachel McGranaghan as telling the San Diego Union-Tribune, one of two naval investigators leading the case.

“We know her life ended in the water, in some circumstance, we just don’t know how,” McGranaghan added.

Vasta’s family has strongly rebutted the suggestion, which indicates that she committed suicide.
